Winemaking Notes
The 2015 Jane’s Vineyard Pinot Noir has a lovely ruby red hue with aromas of cherry, plum, black tea and minerality. On the palate there is a wild berry component along with dark cherries and vanilla that shine through with balance, acidity and a long lingering finish. Warm, bright and full of flavor, the Jane’s Pinot Noir is a wonderful combination of fruit, earth and spice. Enjoy this wine with cheese and charcuterie, mushroom risotto or grilled salmon.
Vineyard Notes
The vines at Jane’s Vineyard generally show moderated vigor in their growth habit, mainly due to the acidic, nutrient poor soil and good drainage from the gravelly loam. The Huichica soil is shallow, with a hardpan at a low depth, so we planted on 101-14 rootstock which has a shallower rooting angle to match the soil profile. Congruently, the vines get water stressed, which we watch closely during the warmer months of the summer.
Production Notes
Late winter rainstorms and a warm January — including a record breaking 80°F day — perhaps helped to trick the vines into getting an early start. Pinot Noir buds at Jane’s Vineyard swelled during the third week of February so we were already thinking of an early harvest months down the road. After several years of higher yields, the vines took a rest and produced a smaller crop. Periods of coolness were punctuated by heat spikes in late June causing a little burn on the skins; a heat wave in mid-August resulted in grape sugars climbing quickly. Harvest commenced very early on August 18th.
